Elk Mountain Mission

ELEPHANT BRANCH (also called Mesa), Wayne Stake, Wayne Co., Utah, consisted of a few families of saints living on the north side of Fremont River about three miles east of the center of Caineville. It consisted of a small village situated about two miles west of where the bluffs on either side of the canyon or narrow valley suddenly drop several hundred feet. The place was settled in 1887 by Orson N. Dalton and others. More settlers arrived in 1888; successful farming was done in 1889, and Orson N. Dalton was appointed presiding Elder of the little settlement in 1890. Failure in crops caused the discontinuance of the settlement and not a vestige of it was left in 1930.
